Sentai Filmworks has licensed URARA MEIROCHO
Fortune telling is the name of the game in Sentai Filmworks’ newest license: Urara Meirocho. This supernatural comedy follows four girls in their quest to become fortune tellers (uranaishi).
Girls from all over the country come to live in Meiro-cho for one reason: to train to become the top uranaishi – the Urara. One day, a 15-year-old girl named Chiya enters the gates, but she has another, secret reason for wanting to become an uranaishi. Together with three very different girls, Kon, Koume, and Nono, Chiya gets started as a fortune teller’s apprentice.
The series is based off the original four-panel manga by Harikamo, with character design for the anime by Mai Otsuka (Shakugan no Shana, Non Non Biyori). Youhei Suzuki (SHIMONETA: A Boring World Where the Concept of Dirty Jokes Don’t Exist, Hentai Prince and Stony Cat) will direct with series composition by Deko Akao (Flying Witch, Noragami, Snow White with Red Hair).
Urara Meirocho is scheduled for a January 5, 2017 broadcast in Japan. It will soon be available on select digital outlets with a home video release to follow.
